Noises Off, widely considered the funniest farce ever written, reveals the hilarious backstage happenings during rehearsals and performances of a play dubbed Nothing's On. Award-winning English novelist and playwright Michael Frayn's (Copenhagen, Democracy) comedy is a triumph of slamming doors, falling trousers and even flying sardines, and it remains crowd-pleasing more than 30 years after its 1982 debut. Watch a manic menagerie of itinerant actors as they try to stitch together a sex comedy that's a sure flop, as out-of-control egos, memory loss and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure.

Beware: When turning right after walking down the entrance hall there is a small ramp-style step in the floor, leading to a slightly higher floor level. This adjustment is not signed or lit with glowing strips. I tripped on this unexpected rise, and a second member of my party tripped and fell down. A lawsuit waiting to happen! The stairs leading down to the bar are dim as well and need glowing strips to guide the theatergoers.Noises Off info • Aug 31 2014 star this tip starred
